With the asset swap made this week by Impact Radio Group and Radio Rancho, a pair of formats have moved to new frequencies. Sports “ESPN Boise” has moved from 730 KNFL/96.5 K243BM Boise to 99.1 K256CZ Boise/101.9 KQBL-HD2 Emmett. The swap places the format on a stronger FM signal as it moves from the 99 watt/805m K256CZ to 250w/805m. 730 KNFL is currently running a loop redirecting listeners to the new 99.1 frequency for the format.
